So, in my mind this was just a simple follow up, sit down, discuss the procedure that had been done, the findings, etc... No undressing to be done, so I headed there with the gremlins in tow. Once we get in the exam room the nurse hands me a gown and advises me he will want to do a pelvic exam and to undress from he waist down.. OH MAN!!! My legs weren't shaved, I don;t even think I put LOTION on, and the gremlins... THE GREMLINS..
I'm going to traumatize them early... I KNOW the day will come when these little beauties will have their moment on those wonderful stirrups, in the most unbearable position imaginable, but I had NO intention of exposing them THIS way, or THIS early. Here we go, I had no choice really, I don't have family here and no one to leave them with even if I had known.
So, I start to undress...
Me: Yes Punky?
K1: Where are your pants?
Me: On the table.
K2: You're taking off your PANTIES?
Me: Yes baby.
K2: For the DOCTOR?
Me:/sigh/ Yes Baby.
K1: He's going to look at your Privates?
Me: /sigh/ Yes baby, now I need you both to sit right over there (picked a nice place next to my head as to try and minimize the questions later) and be good little girls for mommy and the Dr.
Well, THAT seemed to work, and he was AMAZING, talked to them kept them entertained while he did what he had to do, and made an already unpleasant situation a little bearable. Turns out not ALL the news was good news, and more tests will have to be done... Cancer is a tricky little bugger.. But there was optimism in his words, and that was comforting.
After all was said and done, we headed home, and NOT a word of this was ever mentioned by either of them.. This seems kind of weird and out of the ordinary for these two.. I can guarantee you that when I least expect it, and in the most embarrassing situation this WILL come back to haunt me.
I can see it now.... In the supermarket or something in an aisle full of men, one of them will undoubtedly bring up the day I took off my pants and panties and laid down for some man. Like that time we were buying bandaids and wizzed by the femnine products and they grabbed a box of tampons and screamed look mommy bandaids for your booty...
